Summary
This Prelinger Archives film explains how steel is used in the making of highways: "forever embedded in the paving, where it serves to give the roadway permanent strength and durability"; "in overpasses and bridges"; and "in the complicated and amazing road-building equipment characteristic of the work to be done." Topics covered include the forging of steel in rolling mills, causeway construction, overpass and underpass construction, and highway construction, from initial roadbed preparation to the early stages of paving.
